Spotify will come preinstalled on all of Samsung’s mobile devices from 8 March.
This comes after Samsung integrated the music streaming service with its Bixby artificial intelligence (AI) platform and Spotify was named the go-to music service provider of Samsung.
In addition to the app coming preinstalled, new US Spotify customers with specific Samsung Galaxy mobile devices, including the recently launched S10, could get six months of free Spotify Premium, redeemable in-app. This free Premium subscription is only available in the US.
This move forms part of the long term partnership Samsung and Spotify entered last year. This partnership is aimed at covering all of Samsung’s devices, from phones to TVs to speakers. Spotify is part of the setup on Samsung devices and will also become the default music option for Bixby.
